  • 4 oz. Tootsie Roll Bank
  • 1″ Pom Pom
  • Red Fleece
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue sticks
  • White Faux Fur
  • Fur Yarn
  • Beads for nose
  • Glitter foam (Silver and Black)


Step 1

Cut a beard in the faux fur with a 2½ x 1¾ size, make a u-shape around the fur, then comb any excess furs. Cut the fleece in a 9 x 3¾ size and wrap it around the treat container with its top plastic removed. Secure it with hot glue, then attach an 11-inch fur strip at the bottom of the container. Wrap a ½ x 8½ inches black glitter foam around the middle of the container, add a small 1×1 inch silver glitter foam in the middle for the belt’s buckle.

Step 2

Fold an 11 x 1o inches fleece fabric in half lengthwise then cut triangularly starting from the corner without folding towards to opposite top side. Glue the sides together, then when the glue sets, flip it inside out.  Glue a fur strip around the bottom of the hat, then attach the beard on the front inside of the hat. Glue the 15mm half bead in between the fur and the hat, then attach it to the container. Adjust and pull it until it fits perfectly, then glue the pompom at the end of the hat.
